Laden with laughs, this action comedy delightfully depicts the fantastic events that unfold in the life of Ashokan (Mohanlal), an unemployed youth who, with the other members of his club, whiles his time away competing with his cousin Appukuttan (Jagathi Sreekumar) and his club in a series of trivial competitions. In a bizarre twist, wwhen an astrologer predicts to his mother, Sumathi (Sukumari), that Ashokan is likely to commit a murder if he remains in Kerala, Ashokan is bundled away to Nepal to stay with his uncle Captain (retired) Krishnankutty Menon (M. S. Thripunithura), whom he hasn't met since childhood. Unbeknownst to Ashokan, Appukuttan flies to Nepal beforehand and establishes himself in Krishanankutty Menon's (Kutty Mama) house, masquerading as Ashokan. Consequently, Ashokan is cast out onto the streets of Kathmandu, where he meets a young boy and becomes good friends with him. Unbeknownst to him, the little boy is actually a Buddhist Rimpoche whose life is in danger, as a gang of black magicians wish to sacrifice his life in order to attain invincibility. Will Ashokan take it upon himself to protect the young lad from the tremendous danger that surrounds him? Is he in fact the chosen one, fated to be the Rimpoche's saviour?
